PRICES AND SPECIFICATIONS-
Owing to a couple of leaks in the past few days, the OnePlus 7 Pro price in India has been tipped. The same reliable tipster has also shared the alleged OnePlus 7 Pro price in Europe. According to prolific tipster Ishan Agarwal, the OnePlus 7 Pro price in India will start at Rs. 49,999 for the 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage variant. The 8GB RAM/ 256GB storage variant will be priced at Rs. 52,999, while the 12GB RAM/ 256GB storage variant will be priced at Rs. 57,999. Notably, Amazon India has already started taking pre-bookings for the OnePlus 7 Pro, with a Rs. 1,000 booking amount. Reliance and Croma pre-bookings have also begun, with a Rs. 2,000 pre-booking amount. Consumers who pre-book the OnePlus 7 Pro will get a 6-month free screen replacement, worth Rs. 15,000 (though a Rs. 750 processing fee charge will be applied).
As for Euro pricing, Agarwal claims the OnePlus 7 Pro price in Europe is said to start at EUR 699/ EUR 709 (roughly Rs. 55,400/ roughly Rs. 56,200) depending on the country, for the 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage variant. The 8GB RAM/ 256GB storage variant will be priced at EUR 749 (roughly Rs. 59,300), while the top-end 12GB RAM/ 256GB storage variant is claimed to be priced at EUR 819 (roughly Rs. 64,900). The colour variants have also been tipped – Almond, Nebula Blue, and Mirror Grey, and as before, each RAM/ storage variant won’t be available in all three colours. The OnePlus 7 Pro’s 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage variant is said to be only available in the Mirror Grey colour variant, and for now, the colour variants of the other variants aren’t known.
On the other hand, so far we only have an estimate of the OnePlus 7 price in India, said to be Rs. 39,500 for the lowest-end model. The estimate is based on the pattern of how the company hiked prices with each successive generation.
As we’d mentioned earlier in this article, OnePlus itself has been teasing the OnePlus 7 series of smartphones, though most revelations have been centred around the top-end OnePlus 7 Pro variant, with not much disclosed about the OnePlus 7. The OnePlus 7 Pro is said to deliver a ‘fast and smooth’ experience, and while the ‘fast’ would refer to the top-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC that has been confirmed to power both the smartphones, the ‘smooth’ here isn’t just for the speedy interface, but also for the display.
The ‘industry leading smooth display technology’ that the company has been teasing was recently revealed to be a 6.67-inch 90Hz refresh rate display on the OnePlus 7 Pro, a first for the company. The 90Hz refresh rate has been rumoured for a while now as well, alongside what remains an unconfirmed QHD+ resolution – the first time the company has ventured beyond the scope of a full-HD+ display.
OnePlus 7 Pro specifications were leaked in detail in the recent past, indicating the it will be dual-SIM (Nano) smartphone that runs OxygenOS based on Android Pie, and features a 6.67-inch QHD+ (1440×3120 pixels) Fluid AMOLED display with a pixel density of 516ppi, and a 90Hz maximum refresh rate. The OnePlus 7 Pro is said to be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 855 SoC, paired with the Adreno 640 GPU and up to 12GB of RAM.
In terms of teasers, OnePlus has confirmed the OnePlus 7 Pro would feature a triple rear camera setup, capable of 3x optical zoom and featuring an ultra wide-angle lens camera. The company has also revealed that while both the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro will also have some amount of water resistance, they will not bear an IP rating to reduce the cost passed on to customers. In the realm of leaks, the OnePlus 7 is said to feature a dual rear camera setup instead.
The OnePlus 7 Pro’s triple camera setup is said to consist of a primary 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor with an f/1.6 aperture and OIS; a secondary 16-megapixel wide-angle sensor with an f/2.2 aperture and 117-degree field-of-view, and finally, an 8-megapixel sensor with an f/2.4 aperture, 78mm focal length, and 3x optical zoom. Other camera features include dual-LED flash, phase detection autofocus (PDAF), laser autofocus (LAF), and continuous autofocus (CAF). It is said to be capable of 4K video recording video recording at up to 60fps, 1080p recording at up to 240fps, and 720p videos at up to 480fps. The pop-up selfie camera is said to sport a 16-megapixel Sony IMX471 sensor with an f/2.0 aperture and EIS support, capable of 1080p video recording at 30fps. Not much is known about the rumoured dual rear camera setup on the OnePlus 7, except that it should sport the same 48-megapixel camera, but forego the 3x optical zoom. As we’ve already mentioned, it should bear a regular front-facing camera within the waterdrop-shaped notch.
